The rich, charcoal black of ANTHRA-ZINC was the first pre-weathered zinc offered by VMZINC thirty years ago.
TOn the luminance scale of measuring colors ANTHRA-ZINC falls into a Y-Factor range of 5-7. Every batch of ANTHRA-ZINC is measured and the results are documented. Beautiful color variation is expect in natural materials.
Although ANTHRA-ZINC was originally intended for flashing and rain ware for slate roofs, architects have come to appreciate the velvety look of ANTHRA-ZINC and use it increasingly as a building product for walls and roofs. ANTHRA-ZINC can be combined with wood, glass, or concrete for impressive results.
ANTHRA-ZINC is protected by an organic coating that prevents damage during transport and installation. Over the decades, the black aspect will lighten to a very dark grey.
If properly installed according to Umicore Building Products installation guidelines, an ANTHRA-ZINC roof may maintain its beauty for well over 75 years, and walls may last over 100 years. Like all VMZINC envelopes, ANTHRA-ZINC requires no scheduled maintenance (for coastal areas please contact Euroclad for advise).
Euroclad can provide a variety of different zinc roofing and zinc cladding solutions which can all be found below.
"It is crucial to Euroclad to know that at the end of every project the client has walked away with an excellent product and would want to work with us again"
